We currently have free trial access to The Vogue Archive, until 30 March 2013.

This is the complete archive of American Vogue, from the first issue in 1892, to the current month.

Every page and advertisement is fully searchable, allowing you to find images by clothing type, designer, brand names, etc - all reproduced in high-resolution colour (from the 1930's/1940's onward).

 As well as preserving the work of the world's greatest fashion designers, stylists and photographers, Vogue forms a unique record of changes in American and international fashion, culture and society, from the dawn of modern times to the present day.

The content of Vogue is of central importance to research in:
  • Textiles and dress
  • Fashion history
  • Popular culture
  • Gender studies
  • Photography and graphic design
  • Marketing and advertising
but also provides a rich source for other areas of modern culture, changing social tastes, mores and aspirations.

It also includes literary works and articles by important writers, wartime photojournalism, features on popular cultural figures of the day, and on prominent American women.
